I must say in all but its not like im saying im a pro, its just because all the Castlevania plays similar to the other or most, for me all the olds Castlevania have the same rules so its easy to know what to do and dont do and the same goes for the new or metroidvanias, and when some game its easy to play i like to make chalenge for example fight with the headhunter in AoS but with low level and with the inicial weapons, it was hard but after a lot of try i manage to do that, the same goes for the zombie dragon in CotM i 1st think it was impossible to beat in low level but i make it.
  Perhaps the game i have more trouble its the 3D games but for the sidescroll castlevania im good in all or at least is hard to say in which im most skilled, i think its better to ask a friend that see me playing that games.

Is it strange that I'm such a bad Super Castlevania IV player? That game is technically one of the easier Castlevania titles.

I'm not great at SCVIV either. I feel like Simon's movement is awkward and I dislike a button based subweapon as opposed to the ^+whip input.

Glad I'm not the only one who feels that way. I wish that game allowed to toggle certain options on and off, such as having to push up or down to climb a staircase. I also set the A button as the secondary weapon trigger.

That's cool, it should have more options. I'd like to use R for subweapons if possible. Multidirectional whipping is cool, but I much prefer the gameplay of CV Chronicles.

You can. It's selectable in the options menu.

Really? Cool. Forgive my ignorance, haven't played SuperCV for years.

Getting better at Chronicles at the moment. After a long hiatus of stopping at the clock tower I'm up to Death and nearly beat him last night.

No prob  :)

I had to fire up the game myself after posting to make sure I didn't stick my foot in my mouth, lol. No worries on my end.

For me SOTN for sure. I have played that game so many times and remember where everything is at.

CotM for me. Pretty nasty with just a whip on that game. Even beat it using Martial arts  ;D

Harmony of Despair was also one of my favorites. Haven't been on that in a while but I was pretty savage with Ric and Jonathan. If only i wasn't too lazy to hook up the PS3 again.

I'll admit, I still haven't had a go at Albus mode. One day...

I would say AoS as well, especially on boss rush, played the hell out of that game.

I am pretty good at Lords of shadow, Super, Legacy of darkness/64, I was able to beat DCX and rondo with out dying and not getting hit since I remember you get a one up at the end.

I do have some video proof for LOS and super for those that have not seen my playstyle.

Actually I'd have to throw in OOE if not already. Re-starting the game (with Shanoa) on Hard Max L01 without keeping previous weapons/ items only to find the "Dracula Medal" upon restarting that file, just outside of the boss room. This was without using Dominus or glyph-union based attacks; strikes or magic. (Glyph union was only used for evading one attack in order to get damage free frames). This was pretty damn rewarding and unexpected. There were a few other boss fights that saw this too.

Hell I would say that beating Blackmoore and Eligor on this mode with Shanoa and Albus was pleasing to say the least, they among all other bosses were not attacked using Dominus.
